The Ala Wai Canal in Waikiki is surrounded by good walking paths that link several decent-sized parks.
Canoes line the shore at Ala Wai Community Park.
Lots of history here.
It’s a short stroll to the McCully Street Bridge and a view of the slopes of Diamond Head at the end of the canal.
Then it’s over the Makiki Stream Bridge. The stream is not much to look at, but the view is interesting.
The Kalakaua Avenue Bridge is next.
Lots of jellyfish appear as the canal nears the ocean.
And lots of tilapia.
Back toward the other end of the canal is the mouth of Manoa Stream after it’s been joined with Palolo Stream.
I think that’s a goose snoozing along the bank.
And some goslings!
The view’s a little different from another angle.
Lots of ducks near the mangroves.
Some sleep with one eye open.
A friendly bulbul makes an appearance.
A waxbill finch turns up too.
Great way to spend a morning!
